Many of us have been using Lightroom for years and have slowly seen Adobe take moreand more features from Photoshop and move them into Lightroom. With the latest LightroomClassic CC update, Adobe introduced two new ways to refine local selections: colorand luminance range masks.
These masking options allow photographers to further refineall three of Lightroom’s local adjustment tools, making them more precise and betterat selecting objects in cluttered environments.
